calendarFall League

The fall league is currently underway and schedules are published on Tennis Link. Players may be added to teams through October 31. Playoffs will be required to determine the city champions for some divisions. Please refer to the playoff schedule.

CTL RULE REMINDER: Home captain must contact Visiting captain prior to the match date to confirm the match time (s) and the specific number of courts that home facility will provide to start the match - and/or to work out which positions can play an early or late match. This is especially important because the match times and the number of courts provided by the facility for a team match will vary depending on the facility and the number of home teams scheduled at the facility on the same date.

Everyone is encouraged to read the captain's letter. Team captains are also asked to complete the team information form. Good luck this fall!

Just say no to alternate ratings

The USTA posts the official NTRP ratings on our website, TennisLink, located
at tennislink.usta.com. This is the only public website where official NTRP ratings authorized by the USTA are posted and can be obtained.

The USTA is aware of other sites that suggest they provide NTRP ratings or player statistics and skill analysis. Any alleged NTRP related information available on these other sites is not endorsed by the USTA, is not accurate, and cannot be relied upon. We are in the process of taking all appropriate actions against these sites available to us.

Oh so close!

Congratulations to CTL's 4.5 Men 18 & Over team, Crunk Junk for winning the 2017 state championship and being finalists in the Sectional Championship. Crunk Junk is captained by Chris Eaker and lost 2-3 in the final match.

The Columbia Tennis League welcomes all people who play, watch, support or enjoy the game of tennis into our events, programs, membership and leadership and will not discriminate against any person on the basis of age, sex, race, ethnicity, creed, sexual orientation, color, physical condition or national origin.  Moreover, we believe that the growth of tennis hinges on effective outreach to groups that have not traditionally been heavily involved in the sport and we will actively solicit and support the participation of such groups.
